Weekly Freebie and EVG Update

'Planning My Planners' Update - Daily Planner

Hi lovelies! I first want to share pics of my new daily 'go-to' planner. It's a fauxdori by Foxy Fix on Etsy (in case you're not familiar, 'fauxdori' is the term to describe a journal that is inspired by the Midori Traveller's Notebook with a simple elastic system that holds in the journaling booklets inside).

Here's the gorgeous cover with great details such as stitching and a stamped flower. I added a few charms as well.

I made my own inserts - the covers are printables from the new 'Whimsy & Botany' collection.  And since I ordered the fauxdori slightly wider than the regular size, I was able to include 6 inserts into it, which allows me to have the sections I need for on-the-go notes, planning and lists.

One of the sections has 'month-at-a-glace' pages from the planner kit 'My Crafty Life', and another has the 'week-on-two-pages'. I resized them from 5.5x8.5" down to 4.3x8.25".

The other inserts have blank pages for brainstorming and listmaking. There's a section for digital creations, handmade creations, other projects (EVG and personal) and a brain dump section.

I'm really loving this planner! The compact size allows me to throw it in my bag and take it with me to camp or running errands or just have it with me on Netflix nights. And because I made the inserts myself and can replace them when they get filled up, I feel like I can schedule, scratch off, and scribble without being too careful about keeping it tidy and pretty.

I'll try and post a video flip-through soon.

The next planner I'm planning is a more detailed organiser to keep my health, home and all-around life in order. More on that later!
